Looking to debate someone who already accepts the legality of eating other forms of meat and has completed at least one other debate.

Debate format:
Round 1- Acceptance and state stances
Round 2- Opening arguments (No rebuttals)
Round 3- Rebuttals
Round 4- Final rebuttals and conclusions

Stance: I believe that the US government should allow the consumption and retail of cat flesh as food.

POI 1: I do not believe the federal government should mandate that states allow this but I would argue that all state governments should provide legislation protecting this practice or at least overturn legislation that bars it.

POI 2: My last clarification is that by cat I am referring to the species commonly referred to as house cats otherwise known as felis catus.

Thank you, I look forward to debating this with someone.

Hmm... so why doesn't Animal Cruelty prevent eating pigs?

@Sonofcharl of course it is, it's called Animal Cruelty.

The Animal Welfare Act of 1966 does not expressly ban the consumption of cat meat or even the retail of it; it has however, been misinterpreted to ban retail. Meaning nobody in the US can sell cat meat legally. In addition, many states have added legislature that specifically bans cat consumption and retail. For instance, California"s Anti-Pet Eating law bans the consumption of "any animal traditionally or commonly kept as pets"
